Expresiones de apoyo de artistas, patronos y ciudades

"The dream of any artist is always to reach his or her audience and give a top class performance; I am doing so for this incomparable stage that is Europe. I am proud to be able to take part in an event which the whole of Europe will experience simultaneously and in harmony through the magic of opera." Plácido Domingo, after singing Sigmund in Die Walküre in VIVA EUROPA 2009.

"It gives me great pleasure to share this performance with the whole of Europe. In this time of crisis and uncertainty art becomes a vital factor. It encourages me to continue working and dreaming of a more just and tolerant society. Music, with its universal humanistic message is a superb catalyst for favouring positive feelings, wishes and desires." Zubin Mehta, world renowned conductor of the three opera performances in VIVA EUROPA 2009, 2010 and 2011.

"I give my full support to VIVA EUROPA 2011. The project is a great example of how people express their culture. VIVA EUROPA is a bottom up cultural challenge in the field of citizenship and communication. Its message of art and hope reaches out to the hearts and minds of citizens in Europe. This initiative promotes a European sense of community which resonates particularly well in the context of the 2011 European Year of Volunteering." Vice-President Viviane Reding, the EU's Citizenship Commissioner and patron of VIVA EUROPA 2011 as an activity of the European Year of Volunteering.
